There are significant differences between the NA models, the 86 Turbo and the 87+ turbo models.

You should look for 87 + turbo parts. You could use 86 turbo parts but you will not be able to replace the ABS parts if you go 86 Turbo.

As others have mentioned, the 86 Turbo and the 87 and up turbo models are a different offset.
The 87+ models had a different offset to support the ABS systems. They use a different front control arm, different spindles, brakes, etc.
You are going to want basically the entire front suspension from an 87+. If you buy the complete front struts(including brakes) and control arms from an 87+ turbo you should be good.
